Product Overview

The Square D by Schneider Electric QO 20 Amp Single-Pole Tandem Circuit Breaker is intended for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system. This breaker offers 2 circuits in the space of just 1 and is compatible with QO load centers, CSED devices, and NQOD panel boards. The ANSI-certified and UL-listed unit is rated for 120/240 VAC and 10,000 AIR. All QO circuit breakers are equipped with the exclusive Visi-Trip indicator. When a QO Visi-Trip circuit breaker trips, the handle snaps to a midpoint position between "OFF" and "ON" and a highly visible, red indicator easily identifies the tripped breaker. This enables you to easily distinguish which breaker has tripped in a load center that may contain up to 42 different circuit breakers. QO circuit breakers have features no other manufacturer can offer. They come in many different sizes and can meet the needs of virtually every function in your home or business. These types of quality, industry exclusive products keep the Square D brand ahead of the competition and are builders' and electrical contractors' first choice in electrical protection.

Answer: 
I realize this question was posed several months ago but I'm appalled at the answers you received... they were not very helpful at all.
The 15 amp breakers are probably wired with 14 awg wires... a 20 amp breaker should have a minimum of 12 awg wire size connected to it. The short answer here is that if the wires you intend to connect to any 20 amp breaker are at least 12 awg you are good to go... if Read More
I realize this question was posed several months ago but I'm appalled at the answers you received... they were not very helpful at all.
The 15 amp breakers are probably wired with 14 awg wires... a 20 amp breaker should have a minimum of 12 awg wire size connected to it. The short answer here is that if the wires you intend to connect to any 20 amp breaker are at least 12 awg you are good to go... if they are only 14 awg then the answer is definitely NO.
The rated capacity of the panel is irrelevant and only comes into play if you are running so many things that you start tripping the main breaker in which case you need an upgrade from the power company to deliver more power to the house. Circuit breakers are designed to protect the wiring connected to them from overheating and causing fires and NOT to protect the appliance connected to them.

Answer: 
I'm surprised at that answer from Schneider. That's and increase of ampacity of 10 amps, you need a non expired licensed master electrician to calculate your house for that increase to see if your service can handle the increase, you may be already maxed out. When people install tandems it's usually because they are or are close to being maxed out.

Why do you show TWO pictures of the front of the circuit breaker instead of a front AND rear picture?

This question is from QO 2-20 Amp Single-Pole Tandem Circuit Breaker

This is just dumb to not show the back of the breaker WHERE IT CONNECTS TO THE CIRCUIT PANEL.
Does this have the METAL HOOK on the back? The metal hook will NOT fit the older QO circuit panel.
Only a real EXPERT would know the Model QOT has the metal hook; QO has the 2 metal clamps AT RIGHT ANGLES.
Just wastes (HOME DEPOT's) money for freight charges shipping something to store that I can't use.
Both breakers look the same from the FRONT-- WHY would you show TWO FRONTS ? ? ? instead of a front and a rear (can be a SINGLE PICTURE if you have 2 breakers to photograph).

QO 2-20 Amp Single-Pole Tandem Circuit Breaker is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit. Bought these breakers for my regular Square-D QO panel and they have a new metal clip where the snap-on clip used to be. They don't seat correctly. Checked the catalog # and it's the same as the correct breakers I purchased just one month earlier from Home Depot. Got stuck with them on an Island without a Home Depot. Had to make do with a hammer. We will be replacing the panel and all breakers. Your loss; my inconvenience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Luckily they had these in stock, I had my refrigerator circuit on one side of this. Easy Install. Luckily they had these in stock, I had my refrigerator circuit on one side of this. Easy Install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but be careful when installing I needed to add another circuit to an older panel (probably from around 1980) and I had no room left, so I bought this tandem breaker. The breaker was a little tricky to get attached in the panel, because the way it latches on is different from standard breakers as well as it is slightly larger. So, it may take a couple of tries to get it in. Otherwise, a good buy.
